15 French Guineas Straight Run!

              From keets to adults in 3 months, I sure have learned a lot about raising a flock of Guinea Fowl!  What started out only as a means to reduce our tick and insect population has turned into an interesting adventure, similar to riding a roller coaster ride.  There have been ups (I have trained them to return to the coop at the sound of a cow bell) and downs (an injured one die after nursing it for 10 days), a few bumps along the way (making new baby perches EVERY week because they outgrow them), times when my stomach bottomed out... read more

casportpony's "P-Dawg"

Lavender Guinea & Keets 2016

This mama guinea sat on her nest for 4 weeks, right under our noses, and we never noticed. I knew she had disappeared, but I just assumed that a predator had gotten her.  Never thought to check for a nest under the bushes right by the front door of our house! When I opened the door the morning of Aug 1, 2016, I got a big surprise - mama guinea was back, with 23 little keets following along. Papa guinea was with them too, protecting the little babies from the too-curious cats. Opened the front door and found 23 little surprises!   Found the nest hiding under the... read more
